Metro Bike Share Community Ride: Chicanx Art Tour of DTLA
December 11, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, take a ride through Downtown Los Angeles and learn about Chicano/a/x history and communities through public art.
Whether telling the story of a historic moment like Eduardo Carrillo’s El Grito or recognizing the continued challenges and surpassing resilience of those who migrate to the United States today in Alfredo “LIBRE” Gutierrez’ Transportapueblos: Los Resilientes, this route offers firsthand storytelling through art.
Still, it does not tell the complete story of all Chicano/a/x or Latino/a/x people – we recognize the vastness and complexities of diasporas within these communities in Los Angeles County and beyond.
It is important to note that Los Angeles County and this bike route occupy the ancestral, traditional and contemporary lands of the Tongva, Chumash, and Kizh.
